Tonbridge Audiojumble Sunday 17th February


Just a little reminder that Tonbridge time is approaching rapidly - Sunday 17th February.

I’ll be there in my usual spot - come and say hello and buy some tat!


Only if you cover your table in a gold velvet. :slight_smile:


Eau de marantz nicco wafting


Is there coffee faff?


Plastic cup with a spoonful of Nescafé if you are lucky!


not a pour over in sight - few sticky comb overs, maybe.


Flasks and plenty of them and no doubt elastic banded bait boxes


Actually the tea ladies’ home made cakes are usually rather spiffing. And they’re in the other hall from my stall, so I can scoff one down without Mrs. B finding out…


Had a really good day at the Tonbridge Audiojumble.
It was great to meat a few people in person from the AA.
Good day out.
A few bargains in there too


So what did you buy then, Tim?


Just some Nabs for my R2R


Had a great day and a reasonably good sale so no complaints - car came home emptier and wallet came home fuller!

Purchase wise, I failed to resist a non-working monster Technics SU-9600 preamp for £40 and 4/7ths of a Yamaha 99 series midi system for £20.

Finally, as I was leaving, I spotted a turntable on an empty table near the door with ‘Free’ on it. Despite the fact that it was in grotty condition and is also a Connoisseur BD2, a deck which I loathe, it caught me off guard and somehow sparked compassion within me, so I rescued it.

Christ knows why…


So, in summary, good day will now be searching for 3/7th of a Yamaha 99 midi-system for the next three years. :wink:


Beobloke and the bloke who owns the other 3/7ths will be wandering around Tonbridge jumbles for the next few years both looking for what the other has and destined never to meet.


Next time he will be sporting a Garrard SP25 in need of TLC. :joy:


The matching graphic equaliser is on eBay currently for five and a half times what I paid for the 4/7ths. Could be a long search…


I wouldn’t hesitate. Like all sensible people, I love an SP25!


I found an old Sansui deck of SP25 vintage the other day in very good condition, but I don’t think it was ever a world beater.

It was a SR222 MkII.
The tone arm looked quite sexy.
